Mughniyeh assassination signals decline of NATO's genocidal colonial rule over Middle East

by Parliament Square Peace Campaign Thursday, Feb. 05, 2015 at 5:46 PM

The cowardly NATO assassinations of Hezbollah's top commander Imad Mughniyeh (2008) and his son Jihad Mughniyeh (2015) which both took place outside any battlefield, highlights the criminal nature of colonial militarism which does not recognize 'military rules of engagement' because it has never had any legal grounds for being in the Middle East. It is not by happenstance there has been an overwhelming silence from NATO 'government' and 'news' media propagandists over the complete absence of legal grounds for Israeli and US military attacks on sovereign Syrian territory.





Parliament Square Peace Campaign, 1 February 2015



The cowardly NATO assassinations of Hezbollah's top commander Imad Mughniyeh (2008) and his son Jihad Mughniyeh (2015) which both took place outside any battlefield, highlights the criminal nature of colonial militarism which does not recognize 'military rules of engagement' because it has never had any legal grounds for being in the Middle East.

World War One eliminated the Ottoman Empire to pave the way for European colonial powers to try to take complete control of Middle East oil.

 

Imad Mughniyeh: 7 December 1962 - 12 February 2008

The Balfour Declaration of 1917 which is an agreement between the British government and the Zionist Federation paved the way for World War Two, so that Occupied Palestine could be populated with Europeans, so that it would become the most heavily armed military garrison in the Middle East for the colonial oil wars.

It really is impossible for any European government to claim they did not know these facts, and then particularly when you look at the extraordinary actions of the newly formed UN in 1949.

The British and Zionist Federation obviously needed to populate what would become Occupied Palestine so that the State of Israel could become the colonial powers military garrison in the Middle East.

 

the henry kissinger's of this world, who are not known as big fans of society's rule of law, are running out of time


The British had considerable previous form having for example used white slave labour to create colonial settlements to occupy Australia, by calling people 'convicts', which is an only too familiar term the British 'government' illegally use against this unarmed civilian resistance.

Obviously the British government and Zionist Federation did not want Middle East oil wars to enrich civilian populations anywhere, so they could not use convicts to populate Occupied Palestine, because they knew if they used people they had obviously exploited etc, such people would turn on them.

The Swiss bankers have run out of steam roping in wholly corrupt London lawyers for the whole Hollywood circus of European governments pointedly ignoring the fact of European colonial Genocides around the entire world, including the continuing Genocide in the Middle East now.  

 

30.01.2015 INDEPENDENT ADVERTISEMENT FOR SWISS BANKERS HIRING LONDON'S HOLLYWOOD 'LAWYERS' TO TRY TO COVER UP CONTINUING EUROPEAN COLONIAL GENOCIDE.

 

16.01.2015 ICC OPENS 'INQUIRY' INTO HISTORIC LEGAL CHALLENGE TO UN COMPLICITY IN ISRAELS ILLEGAL OCCUPATION OF PALESTINE.

 

Those who cannot admit European colonial Genocides that are continuing now, do not care about any Genocide.

The reality is the illegal system of colonialism is a pyramid scheme solely devoted to murdering anyone to make money for big business, with dirty money routinely laundered through roulette wheels like Switzerland and the City of London.

In 1949 the newly created UN illegally declared without missing a beat over the Nuremberg Trials in 1946, that now an entire population of Palestinian people did not officially exist or have any legal rights as though a human Holocaust had never already taken place in Europe, frankly since the turn of that century.

The pretense that all European governments were not involved in targeting Jewish people who are not Zionists, was laid bare as the lie it is, with their combined declaration as the newly formed UN, that they would now target an entire civilian population of Palestinian people.

While European governments always target anyone who disagrees with them, all European governments had particular reason to make sure that Jewish people were targeted.

All European governments stood to benefit from a European military garrison in the Middle East as indeed did all the Zionists, who have nothing whatsoever to do with Judaism.

That military garrison called Israel had to be populated by real people who were heavily armed if European governments and then the US were going to steal Middle East oil.

Whether it was EU governments or their UN, they were all laying waste to civilian human life everywhere in their quest for the colonial West to control Middle East oil, by holding the biggest guns to the heads of as many civilian populations as possible through divide and rule.

The Middle East was the new colonial ATM machine, that required the military efforts of all European governments to control.

 

...the middle east is not a colonial atm machine and this propaganda openly promoting nato assassinations which are criminal acts, is all illegal...

Colonialism which is variously called capitalism or Zionism, is still the same illegal system of legislation and taxation that murders civilians at home and abroad.

Following World War 2 it was usually sufficient to violently oppress civilians at home, while murdering civilians abroad to generate the greatest revenue for big business.

The fact that Britain and America do not practice 'democracy' was once again openly exposed when Churchill persuaded the US to join them in overthrowing the democratically elected Mosaddegh in a military coup in 1953 because he nationalized the Iranian oil industry.

The colonial Middle East Oil thefts continued:

In 1979, the Iranian people booted out Shah Pahlavi who was a colonial puppet of US & Britain, highlighting a vulnerability of colonial powers

Khomeini returned to Iran on February 1st 1979.

 

February 1st 1979

The Israeli ambassador to the UK was then assassinated in London in 1982.

In 1999 the British Parliament interestingly hid behind Parliamentary privilege to in essence admit on Hansard, the assassination of the Israeli ambassador was a false flag operation that the British intelligence services were involved in.

 

...in legal terms this can only be construed as admission of british government involvement in a false flag crime...

 

The result of the assassination of one Israeli diplomat in London was that the Israeli government immediately illegally invaded Lebanon in 1982.

Israel with the connivance of the US 'government' and a quisling 'government' in Lebanon organized the Sabra and Shatila massacres of Palestinian civilians, while the UN who had illegally declared that Palestinian people did not officially exist, watched.

 
19.10.1982 US PRESIDENCY PROJECT: REMARKS OF PRESIDENT REAGAN & PRESIDENT AMIN GEMAYAL OF LEBANON FOLLOWING THEIR MEETING.

 

In 1983, after the US had simply replaced one Genocidal colonial quisling with another from the same family, Lebanese resistance then made a pretty good job of trying to boot out colonial influence with the devastating bombings of US & French military barracks in Beirut.

 

...the fact that the UN oversaw the massacre of Palestinian civilians was never front page news...

NATO had never seen such successful armed resistance to colonialism in the Middle East, which has informed to this day, how they view what became Hezbollah.

Hezbollah despite small firepower are 'tactically' superior because they have the far wider support of civilian populations across the entire Middle East because most civilians anywhere uphold societys rule of law that exists to protect civilians.

 

 

...there were never any legal grounds for US military barracks in Beirut...

In legal terms, the US 'government' and corporate 'news' media propagandists could bellow out loud, about the Beirut barracks bombings in 1983, but they could never claim in any court of law that their military had any legal grounds for having military barracks in Lebanon.

I saw with my own eyes the US warships evacuating their military out of Beirut in February 1984, when I was a young woman the same age as Imad Mughniyeh.

From the moment of the 1983 barracks bombings which shocked NATO governments, Imad Mughniyeh became the focus of American and Israeli 'governments' because he was part of a wider Middle East resistance that recognized the weakness of NATO military firepower.

 

Imad Mughniyeh with Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

The colonial powers and their news media propagandists found any excuse to blame Imad Mughniyeh for anything, to try to distract from the fact that colonial powers had no legal grounds to be in the Middle East, full stop.

The illegal targeting of Imad Mughniyeh continued for many years.

The US 'government' invented numerous legislative wheezes in the US, to try and extort 'compensation' money from Iran over the barracks bombings through civil claims that frankly lack any legal merit.

 

09.07.2014 MANHATTAN KANGAROO COURT 'TWEAKS' & 'RETROSPECTIVELY' APPLIES LEGISLATIVE WHEEZES, TO TRY TO 'OVERLOOK' SOCIETY'S RULE OF LAW, TO EXTORT COMPENSATION FROM IRAN OVER 1983 BARRACKS BOMBINGS.

 

The US 'government' and their 'Judges' had to 'overlook' the only important fact in society's rule of law (which should never be conflated with corporate legislative wheezes) is that the US military never had any legal grounds for ever being in the Middle East.

As our own unarmed civilian resistance has proved colonial legislative revenue raising wheezes can be repealed  because they are simply not compatible with the far wider law abiding society's rule of law.

It is illustrative that Bush incredibly named Imad Mughniyeh on a hit list of the US most wanted following 9/11.

This was despite it being admitted that 9/11 was nothing to do with Hezbollah, while all the evidence honest people would use in a court of law shows Al-Qaeda has everything to do with the CIA who invented the Al-Qaeda bogeyman.

9/11 and the Beirut barracks bombings could not be more different.

The 1983 barracks bombings targeted colonial military installations that were illegally in Lebanon.  

The fact that Bush named Imad Mughniyeh on his most wanted list showed that the real target of colonial powers was Iranian led resistance to colonialism, not Al-Qaeda who were nothing more than foul colonial mercenaries in Afghanistan.  

It is self evident that governments who will wreak two World Wars on their own civilian populations, really are not bothered with committing 9/11 that only US people who did not experience these wars in the lands they had occupied, could be so blind not to see.

Saddam was of no more use to NATO when he failed to overthrow the Iranian government, before being encouraged to take back Kuwait, while 9/11 makes a point of ignoring the fact that Denis Halliday at the UN had highlighted that the murder of 500,000 Iraqi children through illegal sanctions on Iraq was Genocide.

The US & UK 'governments' were running out of time in terms of covering up and continuing the illegal sanctions on Iraq, which was already Genocide because they did not want a new Iraqi government which would obviously be allied with Iran.

NATO illegally used 9/11 to distract people from the murder of 500,000 Iraqi children, by invading Afghanistan to put distance between Russia and Iran before embarking on the invasion of Iraq to try and isolate Iran.

People around the world however had wised up enough to what was going on, by the time the Iraq War was mooted and millions of civilians from all around the world opposed the illegal war in Iraq, which has caused NATO no end of continuing problems since February 2003, because NATO 'governments' never changed those millions of civilians minds.

Israel next invaded Lebanon in 2006 but Hezbollah once again proved their resilience as resistance.

The CIA and Israel now openly admit they were then cowardly enough to assassinate Imad Muhyniyeh in 2008.

The meeting between Turkey's General Chief of Staff Yasar Buyukanit and Israel's 'Defense' Minister Ehud Barak in Ankara on February 13th 2008, the day after Imad Mugniyeh was assassinated.


Imad Muhyniyeh was assassinated, because they could not put him on trial for anything, not least because it is NATO who have no legal grounds to be in the Middle East.

The behaviour of the NATO news media propagandists reporting of this CIA/Israeli crime now, after the assassination of his son without question, and by closing the comments columns to avoid the obvious criminality of both assassinations, is despicable.

 

Imad Mughniyeh with his son Jihad

The January 18th assassinations by Israel of Imad Mughniyehs son Jihad and Iranian General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi in Syria, only proved cowardly NATOs frustration over their growing failures in the Middle East.

22.10.2011: AL-MANAR: SAUDIS TOLD DAMASCUS THEY WERE INVOLVED IN MUGHNIYEH ASSASSINATION IN 2008

 

...the US military have never had any legal grounds for being in the Middle East...

 

It is revealing that Haaretz unwisely admitted this on October 27th 2008:

 

 

"...Now it has become clear that the U.S. will not hesitate to attack terrorist targets within Syrian territory.
 
In this regard the Americans are not alone. Israel preceded them with the attack on the Dir a-Zour nuclear facility in September last year, not to mention a succession of [not so] mysterious incidents on Syrian soil, from the assassination of Imad Mughniyeh last February to the assassination of Brigadier General Mohammad Suleiman around two months ago.

The common denominator to all these operations is that nobody [in NATO] takes the Syrians seriously anymore [because NATO does not respect or uphold society's rule of law] given the repeated violations of their sovereignty. It is doubtful the domestic security situation there has ever been this unstable.
.."

 

 

In fact, Hezbollah and Iran have exposed the reality is the CIA & Mossad carry out cowardly assassinations off the battle-field, which highlights the very dangerous fact that it is colonial powers who do not recognize anywhere as being outside their battle-ground.

03.02.2015 AL-AHED: FULL TRANSCRIPT OF SPEECH BY SAYYED HASSAN NASRALLAH IN HONOUR OF THE QUNIETRA MARTYRS CONFIRMS NATO HAVE NO MILITARY 'RULES OF ENGAGEMENT'.

 

It is not by happenstance there has been an overwhelming silence from NATO 'government' and 'news' media propagandists over the complete absence of legal grounds for Israeli and US military attacks on sovereign Syrian territory.

22.11.2014: ROTHSCHILD & GLENCORE ORDER NATO'S TURKEY TO CALL THE 'ISLAMIC STATE' SHOTS IN IRAQ OIL WAR 

NATO have thus far failed to overthrow the Syrian government, because they have never had, no ifs or buts, any legal grounds to be in any part of the Middle East at all.

It is the nature of purely criminal colonialism that neither father nor son in the Mughniyeh family were killed on a military battlefield, but through underhand assassinations by truly cowardly criminals.

 

...it is illegal for netanyahu to use an administrative public role, to do the dirty work of murdoch & co...

The true axis of resistance in the Middle East between Iran, Syria and Hezbollah has actually shown it is possible for Islamic and Western society to reconcile to forge a universal system of justice.

Civilians everywhere are united in not wanting to see the biggest mass murderers who are without doubt European and US colonial leaders escape justice by avoiding juries in courts of law time and time again.
